Godiva - Pre Valentine Event

Happy Pink Saturday. My niece Daniela and I got to attend a Pre-Valentine Chocolate making cocktail party at Godiva Chocolate's Corporate offices in NYC. We were greeted by lovely Godiva employees and handed champagne. The room was decorated so elegant and festive. Hor'derves were passed as well as a platter of different Godiva chocolates. On Hand for our demonstration and hands on class was Godiva's Executive Chef Chocolatier Thierry Muret. Mr. Muret taught us how to temper chocolate and how to make tuxedo strawberries and told us everything and I mean everything about chocolate! We then put our aprons on and got to work ahem (clearing my throat) we got to "play in chocolate"! We were spoiled we had trays of super huge sweet strawberries to decorate and we got 3 heart shaped fudge hearts to decorate. Chef Muret ordered special organic sugar coated roses and pansies for us to use along with the other decorations. We were definitely spoiled! Thank you Chef Thierry Muret and Godiva.
Godiva has a fabulous Rewards Club that you should join! Why? Well every month you get a "free" piece of chocolate and for every $20 spent you get a gift for that month. You will receive special invitations and newsletters also.
